$1.89

Several years ago as I drove around my 1998 Ford Windstar van I decided I should fill up. But my word! The gas was ALL THE WAY UP TO $1.89 a gallon! Well, I told myself, "I am just going to wait until the prices go back down. This is rediculous!"

I never forgot about that day, wishing that someday it would get back DOWN to the price that I thought was so high!

Several years later, the gas is down to $1.89 a gallon again! LOL! I cannot TELL you the JOY I felt filling up this morning! LOL!

Too funny! I was pretty excited myself to fill up at $1.97, but I'm still pining for those days of .89 cents when I FIRST started driving a car. *sigh* Now that's dreaming!

We are still at 2.54 a gallon in NC. My husband won't believe it when I tell him.
Time for a road trip with that price... but I guess that would defeat the purpose.

I was excited to see today's prices down to $2.17. But ... I seriously wonder what tomorrow will bring.

We have refineries just 20 minutes from our house, but this summer's prices got up to $3.60. So, $2.17 looks good to me. Hope it stays down for our road trip to Oregon for Thanksgiving.

Wow! I am going to get gas after work today-hope I can get it under $2! I haven't checked the price here the last day or two.

Wow, really? I filled up here in Texas at $2.06 a gallon today and thought that was great. I am so thakful to see the prices going down. One benefit to the poor economy!

I too am so excited about the price of gas. I was wondering how we were going to pay for Victoria to go to preschool too since Anni is also going so it is $220 a month. But, low and behold the gas is down and we are saving almost enough for her whole tuition. God is good!!

What?!?!? Where do all you people live? Our gas is still $2.49 and we are usually cheaper than everywhere else. Crappy.
